This Baby Food Will No Longer Be Sold Due to High Arsenic Levels, FDA Says

A baby food brand has made a major decision after a routine sampling led to the discovery of a significant health threat to children . Highlighting their commitment to children's safety as "top priority," the company has recalled the product and gone so far to announce that they'll "exit the market" with it. The Upstate New York-based Beech-Nut baby food brand has been making products since 1931. This week, the brand announced the following, via the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA): "[A] routine sampling program by the State of Alaska … found that samples from that production lot of Beech-Nut Stage 1, Single Grain Rice Cereal tested above the guidance level for naturally occurring inorganic arsenic set by the FDA in August 2020, though the rice flour used had been tested and confirmed as being below the FDA guidance level for inorganic arsenic."
